(Sporting Alert) — Cristiano Ronaldo‘s Portugal take a slight 1-0 lead in their World Cup European Qualifying Play-Offs against the Zlatan Ibrahimovic-led Sweden Tuesday night.
Ronaldo scored the winner when the two sides met last week and the Real Madrid forward will be hoping two finish off the job on the road.
At the same time, Ibrahimovic, who was hoping for a better result from the first leg, is confident he and his teammates can get the job done at home, as they also look to keep Ronaldo and company off the scoresheet.
